In follow-up coverage, it was noted that Google was also using the same method to distribute a consumer-facing app called "Screenwise Meter," which Google subsequently pulled.

[Update: Rollout starts today] Roku Channel adds paid subscriptions for Showtime, Starz, and more

Monday, January 28th, 2019

The Roku Channel, currently a library of free ad-supported movies and TV shows, will soon grow to include paid subscription services including, most notably, Showtime and Starz. The savvy business move will draw in more channel viewers and likely boost ad revenue, as well as allow the company to play a more active role in the content that runs on its devices. From a user perspective, there are two main benefits: easier, consolidated content searching in one channel, and the ability to pay for multiple subscriptions through one monthly bill.

Google hires high-ranking Apple engineer to launch mysterious Fuchsia OS

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2019

It's no secret that Google has been working on a new operating system (and potential Android replacement) called Fuchsia since at least 2016, but details are otherwise few and far between. The most recent tidbit to emerge publicly? High-ranking Apple engineer Bill Stevenson says he's joining Google to help bring the new OS to market.

While that sounds promising, it by no means provides us with a timeline - the only thing we have that's close to that is Bloomberg's unconfirmed report that Fuchsia will ship on connected home devices within three years.

Samsung and LG warn of profit decline in fourth quarter as smartphone market stagnates

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

Turns out Apple is not the only company expecting to disappoint investors with its next set of quarterly results — Samsung and LG are in the same boat. Whether or not it's for precisely the same reasons is unclear, but it seems a plateauing smartphone market is at least partially to blame for all three companies' guidance misses. 

In Samsung's case, the tech giant estimated its operating profit for the three months ended December was approximately 10.8 trillion Korean won (approximately $9.67 billion), which is roughly 29 percent down year-over-year and about 18 percent less than the 13.2 trillion won predicted by analysts.

Fake heads are predictably great at fooling Android face unlock

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Facial recognition on Android isn't the most robust method of securing your phone; it even says as much when you set it up. It shouldn't be very surprising, then, that it can be fooled by what is probably the least likely thing someone trying to get into your device will have access to: a lifelike, 3D-printed replica of your head.

Forbes tested facial recognition unlock methods against a creepy 3D-printed head on a handful of devices: OnePlus 6, both Samsung's Galaxy S9 and Note 8, the LG G7 ThinQ, and the iPhone X.
